DPRK – PRC economic integration

According to the Choson Ilbo, China-N.Korea trade has reached a historically high level (as it does nearly every quarter).

China’s trade with North Korea has tripled since 2005. According to the Korea Trade-Investment Promotion Agency (KOTRA), Chinese customs statistics show that China has been bumping up its trade with the North by US$1 billion every three years since the middle of the last decade.

After first breaking past the $1-billion trade barrier in 2005, China posted $2 billion in 2008 and over $3 billion last year. Minerals, machinery and cars topped the list of exports, and two-way trade last year reached its all-time peak of $5 billion.
